THis open-air ice rink, fountain and park building complex will be located in the heart of the 28-acre Mill River Park located in the City of Stamford, CT, at the lower reaches of Rippowam River.

The team's vision was to create a fun, inviting building with maximum revenue generating capabilities with minimized energy usage and maintenance costs. With larger spaces required on the ground level, it was natural to elongate the building with multiple outdoor steps and landings to reach the observation deck that will also serve as a rentable event space. The building provides various experiences and perspectives of the overall park.

The program of the building includes a restaurant, skate rental, multiple event spaces, and future Mill River Collaborative office.
